Course Description

Are you an artist who falls into one or more of the following categories?

  1. You don't have a website for your artwork, and you know you need one in order to get your work out into the world, but feel overwhelmed and don't know where to start.
  2. Maybe you already have a website but you know that it doesn't represent you or your work as well as it could.
  3. You are looking to boost your income by selling your work online. You don't want a "store" per se but something integrated into your online portfolio.

These days creating a website doesn’t have to be expensive or time consuming. Learn how to photograph your artwork, carefully select and register a website domain name, set up hosting and work with Wordpress to make and maintain your own website. Designing web pages, setting up a blog, creating an online portfolio, and even adding the ability to sell online will also be covered. With the help of a professional designer and artist, participants will gain the confidence and knowledge needed for producing and nurturing an engaging, visually appealing website that enhances their brand!
